Tyco Fire Protection Products (TYCO), a global leader in fire suppression technologies, announces the fire protection industry’s first Early Suppression Fast Response (ESFR) sprinklers with a K-factor of 16.8 (242) and 25.2 (360) to earn the CE mark in the European Union (EU).
The Tyco Model ESFR-17 pendent and upright sprinklers and the Model ESFR-25 pendent sprinkler are the first sprinklers tested to the new product standard developed by FM Approvals in collaboration with the European Organization for Technical Approvals (EOTA). Endorsed by the European Organization for Technical Approvals (EOTA), the standard is the result of demand from owners and installers throughout the EU to know which storage sprinklers meet the necessary standards.
Design criteria for the new listing and detailed technical information on the Model ESFR-17 pendent and upright sprinklers and Model ESFR-25 pendent sprinkler can be found in technical datasheets TFP315, TFP316 and TFP312 respectively, which are available on www.tyco-fire.com.
